K Thaw's claim that he was not the
father of "Pom-Pom," Evelyn's
six-year-old son.
"PomrPom" is the lad's pet name.
His right name is Russell.
"A boy given money is placed on
the road to ruin," said Miss Nesbit
as she now calls herself.
"I shall make no effort, to establish
his legitimacy. I am sickof courts."
Her statement was inspired by an
assertion credited to Harry Thaw
that the boy would not share in the
Thaw fortune, which experts say is
at least $40,000,000.
Thaw repudiated the paternity of
the child in testimony in his suit for
divorce. The degree was granted on
April 19.
Russell Thaw was born near Pots
'dam, Germany, on Oct 25, 1909.

AIN'T NATURE WONDERFUL
Unnatural History by Gene Ahern.
What is this, a mudhen? No!
Guess again. Well, it's a ham sanoV
wich. Wrong again! It's a robin,
that's what. Can't you see his red
breast? How did he come to get a
red breast? Search us, unless he
acted like some people we knew who
always spill a bottle of catsup on
their vests.
In this article we are going to
startle the natives with something
they never thought or dreamed about
how the robin gets wise to where
a worm is located.
Are you sufficiently recovered
from the shock to continue this re
markable article?
See that little ding-a-ling on the
robin's head? It's a little mental
telepathy wireless feather qalled the
Areezee Razoo. As soon as a worm
starts thinking his thought waves
vibrate until they run into the Aree
zee Razoo. Then, Herman, the robin
traces the waves to their source and
puts his nose down in Mr. Worm's )
domicile and drags him out and tells
the worm that there's more money
in being an interior decorator than a
miner. Since the worm has to start
thinking before the robih can find
him, we figure out that if wrestlers
were worms, all the robins would
starve to death.

1 VERS LIBRE - -She
was a country girl,
And midst the buttercups and lowing
kine '
She dwelt in. the happiness of igno-
ranee.
Then one day the city feller came,
Just like in " 'Way Down East,"
And Tildy went"away.
And the old folks used to sit around
the fireplace
To hum,
And wonder and wonder what Tildy
was doing. "
And thus it was for seven long sum
mers, , '
And seven exceedingly chilly winters.
Epilogue:
Then'Tildy came home!
"I have done very well, mother,"
Said Tildy, with a Bostonese accent
"You haven't fallen, then?" queru
lously questioned ma.
"No, only into a big bankroll,"
Said Tildy,
"Which I garnered running a milli- Q)
nery shop."
So, you see?
